Subject: Great Show
Hamza el Din Set is Great
Mind Wondrin -
this is a bad 3-day run, but wait...the final show's not bad at all. It definitely has enough moments to be worth having in your collection. If you want a fall 78 and specifically want to see what Egypt was all about, this is the place to start. Granted, this is mostly about rock-gig history and the band entourage was documented as being rather loose and care-free - that comes through - but not necessarily in a bad way the final night. Donna sounds like she's been up for days (take that any way you want). Jer sounds nonplussed but content. Renditions are unique in some respects but I think a lot of that is just the way the mix comes through. I'm sure it was a supreme test on the crew to pull this off - even after a year of preparation, paperwork, shmoozing, etc.
